Venue for the Awards

Even though I’d like to see the Blog Awards in Cork since I travel to Dublin far too much already, I think to get the largest amount of attendees Dublin will be where it’s held. So, does anyone have suggestions as to where it could be held?

Who out there in the Bloggersphere will attend if it is held? What kind of facilities are you in need of? A net connection? (Leave the laptops at home, saddos.) A place that sells alcohol?

    I’ll attend, if only to find out who Twenty Major is.

  2. JL Pagano says:

    I reckon alcohol first, net connection second. I think it’s a brilliant idea myself. It would turn the blogging community into just that – a community, and you never know, may bring some greater media attention to the Irish Blogsphere.

    Count me in.

  3. Colm says:

    If it’s on anywhere between Nov 18th and Dec 16th I can’t go. Damn it anyway!

  4. Kevin says:

    I expect both Michael and myself from Disillusioned Lefty will be there. As long as its not on the 27th of November (Dylan’s playing) and probably on the condition of it being in Dublin. Is it a case of hiring a place, or just turning up in some bar?

  5. Piaras Kelly says:

    I should hopefully be able to land us a bar in Dublin. No wifi as far as I’m aware though. Booze first, computers second IMO also.

    Herein lies the problem. It’s a nice idea, but a lot of us don’t want/have reason to put our real names out there 😉

  7. Kevin says:

    Optional masks to be dispensed at the door?

    can i send an Indian Chief in my place, he is of the Larkhall Lakota tribe, his name is – Dances With Flute,s, you see i,m already double booked with a dinner engagement with Woody Allen.

  11. Fiona says:

    Here’s the problem; lots of us blog in our own names but some do so under pseudonyums (and in fact some of the best blogs are done this way) so we may miss out on a lot of people at an actual ceremony…

    Plus sides include increasing traditional media coverage of blogs here. Ho hum….I’ll come but (a) I refuse to be the only girl and (b) we’ll be missing some real gooduns I wager
